What it is ain't exactly clear

That'll work.
Thousands of people, including a number of good friends, were out on the streets this past weekend marching for "life." Well, who, other than the abortionists and the elderly euthanists and the Islamic terrorists, is against life?

Did you notice the amount of press coverage given this "March For Our Lives" versus that given the anti-abortion "March For Life?"

Marching in streets is what Americans do when we get riled up about something. These kids today, they don't know nothing about taking to the streets. I came of age in the 60s. Remember this 1967 hit by Buffalo Springfield?
There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
...
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side.
People on every side can march everyday for all I care. There's a lot of genuine emotion about the killings, and I respect that -- especially after a friend chastised me for an earlier post on it. My opinion, however, is that it's feel good virtue signalling. It won't solve the problem of crazy people killing our children in the schools. That problem is more complex than marches and chants.

We have to approach that horror on many fronts: the cowardly police departments, Obama's policy of not arresting bad kids, our shameful mental health system, the possible role of antidepressants in teenagers, the disappearance of fathers from families, the disappearance of Christianity, which teaches not to kill, and maybe others.

You can't fit all that on a poster.

It's ironic that many protestors were protesting President Trump. That's because back in the real world The Donald was:
Banning bump stocks, the add-on device that turns a rifle into something like a machine gun.

Scrapping Obama's rule that made it impossible for schools to control violent students.

Signng an executive order establishing the Federal Interagency Council on Crime Prevention to mprove the nation's mental health system.
And now for your musical entertainment.
